“Breaking Dawn” from Twilight series not on the shelves of Utah school library

Reported yesterday in the Salt Lake Tribune, Breaking Dawn, the final book in the Twilight Series has arrived at Brockbank Junior High. So why can’t students check it out? Following a parent’s complaint, has not been put on the library shelves. As far as we understand, the book was selected for educational reasons and should be kept in the library. If there is a question about the books educational value, the school should begin a standard review process.

If the school is just caving to one parent’s demands, then the book should go back on the shelves.  Schools are responsible for deciding which books have pedagogical value for students. As parent Kris Jensen said, “It’s the parent’s job to monitor their children and decide what they can and can’t read, not the schools.”
